On December 30 a woman was killed when she was hit by a big rig while riding her bike in Riverbank near First and Atchinson Streets. Reportedly the woman had gotten off her bicycle to walk the bike across the street when a truck was turning right onto Atchinson and hit her in the crosswalk. She was dragged approximately 100 to 200 yards then fell underneath the truck and was run over. She died immediately. This accident can easily be ruled a wrongful death as it seems that the woman was in the crosswalk and had dismounted the bike to cross the road.
